Dan's four-teamer hit as well, as all four underdogs covered easily. This will be a game that Le'Veon Bell will be a key factor in. Yet the lines are just as sweet for wagers! Tennessee has hardly found themselves in this position over the years, while this is the norm for New England. We are picking all four games in a ten-point teaser. There's a reason the sixth seed is favored here. They have no chance. Lines this week come courtesy of ESPN. The Vikings allowed 43% of the offensive touchdowns against them to come on rushing attempts, the fourth-highest rate in the league-and the highest of any team remaining in the playoffs. However, the Vikings stand in the way, and won't be an easy task, especially in Minnesota. I don't trust the Nick-Foles-led Eagles any more than the next bettor.
The Patriots are 9-1 at home in the playoffs since the 2011 season. Considering the Jags' performance last week, I think the Steelers will run away with this one. Let's give you the picks for this weekend, and let's start with the two monster favorites in the AFC. Because of some troubling locker room rumors circulating I believe this Patriots team will be extra motivated, as if they needed an extra edge to play with. I don't buy that and even if it were true Julio Jones anyone??? Likewise, taking Pittsburgh on this tease nearly feels too easy. Patriots win 31-20. The victor of Sunday's game will play either the Falcons or Eagles for a trip to Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis.
Normally I wouldn't pick against the Vikings at home, but this Saints team is going to go all the way. That won't fly against the Vikings.
I feel really good about three of these home teams in my teaser, with the Eagles being the lone wart. With Carson Wentz it would be a different story. Maybe this was a gambling blessing in disguise. Upsets happen but this one to me, this is a "lock" type of game.
Each of the home teams this weekend are solid favorites, with the surprising exception of the Eagles. Every road team gets points in our ten-point teaser! "I don't see them winning up there".
Sorry not sorry to the Philadelphia Eagles, but Atlanta has a bigger chip on its shoulder and more to play for.
So, what are the odds the Saints avenge their Week 1 loss?

Football is a game of territory.
It's been a long time since Week 1, when the Vikings defeated the Saints, 29-19, that's what Drew Brees wanted everyone to know heading into this week's NFC divisional playoff matchup between the teams.
Mariota will be challenged to keep drives alive despite a limited receiving corps, which means the run game will likely prove crucial.
Just eight teams remain in the 2018 National Football League playoffs, all of them tantalizingly close to a trip to Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Therefore its safe to take almost two touchdowns and New Orleans.
Jacksonville's defense can clearly create a number of problems for Pittsburgh. At best, an injured Antonio Brown. Tennessee hasn't scored more than 24 points in a game since Week 6 and ranked 25th against the pass in the regular season. Does no one respect the Titans at all?
"I think having gone through these situations, understanding what it's like, the atmosphere, those kinds of things, knowing that it's going to be tough, all those things kind of carry forward", Ryan told reporters, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
